New England winters are known for their breathtaking landscapes, but why does winter happen at all and how does it impact the plants and animals living through it? Explore the why and how, as well as the impact colder temperatures and decreased sunlight has on our ecosystem, while learning to appreciate the unique treasures and challenges of winter.
This program will include an online presentation; two weeks to complete optional challenges using what you've learned; and a follow-up session for challenge discussion and questions.
